One of the most colorful characters in all of the Tanach (The Holy Scriptures)–aside from the story of his coat of many colors--is the personality and role of Joseph, the 11th son of our forefather Jacob.  Sold into slavery as a young adult by jealous brothers, we learn of his meteoric rise to the second highest government position in all of Egypt: Viceroy.  Through his God-given talents--first as an interpreter of dreams and later as an economic and agricultural genius—Joseph contributes immensely to the narrative of the Jewish people and their sojourn in the Egyptian land of Goshen as his kinfolk are forced to leave Canaan due to severe famine.  Using text, midrash and commentary, you will have a chance to get to know the full Joseph story.  Instructor: Marden Paru; Fee $60.
